i know someone you loved and admired. what a privilege to get to have known him just a little bit. >> even as we've been mourning the loss of ali, it's been gratifying to hear the wonderful things people have been saying about him. not just their love for him, but recognizing the controversial side of muhammad ali, as well. that is our top story this morning. muhammad ali has returned home. the body of the boxing legend now back in his hometown of louisville, kentucky, where a public memorial will take place a little later this weekend. "today" national correspondent craig melvin is in louisville, the city, and the world celebrating the life of a native son. craig, good morning to you. >> good morning to you. i've had the chance to talk to some of the thousands that stopped by the makeshift memorial. dropping off cards, flowers, artwork, even boxing gloves. the greatest is gone, of course, but a lot of the folks are telling me they are pleased that
they will have a chance to say good-bye to this city's favorite son. >> reporter: this morning, the champ is home. muhammad ali's body arrived in louisville, kentucky, late sunday. friday, a public memorial service is planned for the three-time heavyweight champ. >> i am the king of the world! >> hold it. hold it. >> reporter: known for his charisma, whit. >> i am the greatest. >> reporter: and resolve in and out of the ring, muhammad ali will be laid to rest in his hometown with a slow procession, circling the city. it will wind through the neighborhood where he grew up, and make its way down the street bearing his name. the 74-year-old died late friday from septic shock due to unspecified natural causes. over the weekend, tributes poured in. newspapers from around the world had his image on front pages. celebrities including paul mccartney, madonna and buzz
aldrin expressed concondolences. president obama tweeting this photo, showing him underneath the iconic image of a triumphant ali looming over sonny liston. saying, he shook up the world and the world is better for it. rest in peace, champ. >> in honor of the late muhammad ali. >> reporter: a tribute to ali as a man of faith. before he was the world's greatest, he was a son of louisville. ali learned how to box just blocks from this boxing gym where his life still inspires others. >> when you hear kentucky, you think muhammad ali. >> reporter: his life outside the ring motivated this 11-year-old, who plans to be a doctor. >> what he told me is that you can do great things, and you can change the world. he did. >> reporter: at the muhammad ali center, a museum and cultural space devoted to promoting his values, thousands of mourners made their own memorial. the global humanitarian who
became exponentially bigger than boxing. whose good humor and spirit inspired millions. fought to the very end. his daughter hana sharing an emotional post on instagram, describing her father's last moments. saying, all of his organs failed, but his heart wouldn't stop beating for 30 minutes. his heart just kept beating. >> before that fight with george foreman back in '74, a fight no one thought he was going to win, he gave us one of his more famous one-liners, promising to float like a butterfly and sting like a bee. another tribute, an odd one, but fitting, popped up hours after word of his death spread. a swarm of bees actually took root in this tree next to that quote here at the ali center. the beekeeper telling me that
that has never, ever happened. matt and savannah? >> that's fitting, craig melvin. thank you very much. muhammad ali's daughter laila joins us now. good morning. our condolences. >> good morning. thank you. >> how are you doing? how is the family doing? >> well, we're sad. i personally have been sad for a long time. my father has been struggling with parkinson's disease for many years. it wasn't easy to watch him suffer. knowing he's not suffering anymore is what gives me comfort. i prepared mentally for many years that, you know, obviously, one day, i was going to lose my father. the time has come. i think the whole world is sad. anybody who ever loved him, and so many people do. i don't feel alone. it's not just our family. it's the whole world. >> i was going to say, so many people of the world, not just americans, love him and revere him and feel like they know him. yet, you know him from a vantage
point so few do, as your father. tell us about that side of him. >> well, i mean, my father, there's really not much i say that people don't already know about my dad. he was pretty much an open book. you know, he treated kids that he didn't know the same as he treated us, when it came to how much love he showed. you always see him picking up kids and kissing babies. he always puts children first. his humanitarian work is about making sure kids have a brighter future. so he was a loving father. he pretty much gave us anything we wanted, which now that i'm a parent, that isn't always good. he was a spoiler. that's what i remember, just being kissed and hugged and him being that person that would give you anything you want because he wants to see a smile on your face. >> there was this young man who was interviewed in craig melvin's piece who was living in louisville. he said, i learned that you can
do great things and you can change the world. the constant in muhammad's life, throughout his entire life, was this unwavering belief in himself. where do you think he got that? >> i don't know. i mean, i have that same belief. i feel like it was just passed down to me. where he got it, i don't know. i mean, it was passed down to him from somewhere. i think a lot of that comes from just having someone in your life that kind of puts that idea in your head, that you can do whatever it is you want to do. i mean, my parents both did it for me. my mom did. you know, there are also parents that tell their kids they can't do something and put that fear in their head. i think that, you know, once you go out and you're willing to work hard and put in the work, and you do what you thought you could do, it gives you more confidence to keep going. >> right. >> that's what holds a lot of people back in life. i'm glad that that child, along with many others, was inspired by my father. people need inspirations from others to make them strong in
areas they're not naturally strong. >> you talked about the suffering earlier, laila. you said it was hard to watch. do you think your dad had grown weary of this fight? he was such a fighter, but had he grown weary of this fight with waparkinson's? >> that would be hard for me to answer that question, but i would say, never to the point where he wanted to move on. i know that my father -- one of the things he was afraid of was death. he definitely wouldn't want to just move on. but we're not in control. obviously, god is in control, and everything pretty much is written. you know, it was time for him to go. i know he's in a better place now. he's talking again and moving again and doing all the things he couldn't do in this body. i'm happy for that, even though i will miss him deeply. >> i want to close by asking about your son, curtis muhammad
conway jr. it is striking, how much he bears resemblance to his grandfather. i wonder if that is a comfort to you and what you plan to tell him about his grandfather. >> definitely. my son is a spitting image of my father when he was young. he has so many of the same characteristics and qualities. he's definitely going to live on through him. he's learning more and more as he gets older, how special papaw actually was. it was hard to break the news to them. i told them this morning that he went on to heaven. it's really hard to explain to a 5-year-old and a 7-year-old about that. that was a challenge for me. the first time i ever had to do it. but they're doing well, and i'm going to be here to support them and stay strong for them. >> laila, i know how proud your dad was of you and, again, our condolences. we mourn with you and your family. thank you very much. >> thanks for all the love. i appreciate it. >> thank you. coming up, bryant gumbel and bob costas will join us for more on the life and legacy of
muhammad ali. we'll turn now to politics. donald trump under fire once again for his comments about the federal judge involved in the trump university lawsuit. this as hillary clinton looks to lock up the nomination. she and bernie sanders are battling it out in california. nbc national correspondent peter alexander joins us now from trump tower with the latest. peter, good morning. >> hi, savannah. good morning to you. with a win this weekend, hillary clinton in puerto rico all but assured she will wrap up the democratic nomination tomorrow night. setting her up for a fight with donald trump. trump in the face of blistering criticism, a lot from republicans, over his attacks on the mexican-american federal judge. he's intensifying his stance. >> reporter: hillary clinton on the cusp of clinching the democratic nomination tomorrow, looking past bernie sanders in california. instead, hammering away at her republican rival. >> donald trump is not qualified or temperamentally fit to be
president and commander in chief. >> reporter: clinton not mincing words. >> we are trying to elect a president, not a dictator. >> reporter: donald trump stirring new outrage, arguing his ethnically-based criticism of the mexican-american federal judge overseeing lawsuits against him would apply to religion, too. asking if a muslim judge would have trouble treating his fairly because of his call for a ban on muslim immigrants -- >> it would be possible, absolutely. >> reporter: for judge curiel, the son of a mexican immigrant born in indiana, trump is refusing to back away from his repeated attacks. >> he is a member of a club or society, very strongly pro-mexican, which is all fine. i say he has bias. i want to build a wall. i'm doing very well with the latinos, with the hispanics, the mexicans. i'm doing well with them, in my opinion. >> reporter: trump's comments viewed as offensive, forcing prominent republicans to reject his words while still supporting
his campaign. >> i couldn't disagree more with what he had to say. all of us came here from somewhere else. >> reporter: and from two men floated as possible vp picks. senator bob corker on trump's behavior. >> i think he's going to have to change. >> reporter: and newt gingrich. >> this is one of the worst mistakes trump has made, and i think it's inexcusable. >> reporter: the clinton campaign punctuating the point with a new web video this morning. at the start of ramadan, president obama is extending his best wishes to muslims in the u.s. and around the world. adding this contrast to trump. i stand firmly with muslim-american communities in rejection to the voices that would seek to divide us, or limit our civil rights or religious freedoms. trump is reversing his stance on u.s. intervention in libya, saying he would have authorized targeted strikes to take out qaddafi. >> i didn't mind surgical. you do a surgical shot and take him out. >> reporter: a dramatic shift from his position during the
primaries. >> we would be so much better off if qaddafi were in charge right now. >> this morning, it's appearing increasingly likely neither donald trump nor hillary clinton will face an independent party challenger coming up this fall. the writer david french, whose name was recently floated as a possible third-party presidential pick, decided not to make a bid. writing in an op-ed over the weekend, quote, i'm not the right person to challenge trump and hillary, but the path remains open for others. matt and savannah? >> peter alexander on politics for us, thank you. let's turn to tropical storm colin churning off the coast of florida, as millions along the east coast are set to feel the effects starting sometime this morning. kerry sanders in clearwater beach, florida. good morning to you. >> good morning. we have a moment where there is no rain. the lines have been coming through, squall lines. in some cases, the wind gusts have been up to 50 miles per hour. it's knocked out power to 5,200 people in the tampa bay region.
we look a little to the north of where i am right now in cedar key, you can see the strong winds and tremendous amount of rain. in some cases, there could be up to eight inches of rain. now, the national weather service hurricane hunter out in the gulf of mexico snapped an amazing photograph. you can see the waterspout off the right wing. that suggests, according to the weather officials, there could be more tornadoes associated with tropical storm colin here. they suspect there will be tornado watches along the west coast of florida today. most schools are open. they expect business will continue as normal. a lot of sandbagging and concern for the next two or three days of possible flooding. matt and savannah? >> kerry sanders, thanks very much. al, i guess that's the calm before the storm. >> exactly. although this is a lopsided storm. the heaviest amount of rain is on the eastern edge. so you can already see, it's making its way into florida now. right now, colin is southwest of
tampa. 50-mile-per-hour winds. right now, we have tropical storm warnings along the gulf. inland, we have flash flood watches through monday. maybe even extended on into tomorrow. now, here's what we've got today. look at this system. by 1:00 p.m. this afternoon, 50-mile-per-hour winds just off the florida coast. makes landfall sometime late tonight. by 2:00 a.m., it's along the southeastern georgia coast. then is pushed out by this cold front with winds of 60 miles per hour. the rainfall, again, the big deal. west coast of florida, the heaviest. locally, eight inches possible from tampa to sarasota. we can't rule out tornadoes. that's what's going on around the country. we'l
good monday morning. i'm meteorologist karen thomas, taking a look at your neighborhood forecast this morning, it is a day for drying out after the strong storms move through very quickly last evening. we are seeing sunny skies, really not too many clouds around at all. we'll say good-bye to the storm system and tranquil weather with plenty of sunshine and temperatures making it up into the mid to upper 80s, well above average this time of year. yes, indeed, you will need the sunglasses and the sunscreen. enjoy. >> through wednesday, upwards of eight inches of rain all the way up to cape hatteras. we'll continue to watch it. >> al, thanks very much.
we get ready to say good-bye to the greatest this morning. we're joined by former "today" co-host bryant gumbel and bob costas, with their thoughts on on the life and legacy of mau hauh ali. >> good morning. >> i worried, does the younger generation get it? he'd been silenced the last couple decades and they didn't see firsthand what we saw. >> bob and i were sitting there and watching melvin's piece. i said, do you realize that if you're talking about the rumble in the jungle, somebody can be 45 years old and not have seen it? >> yeah. >> i mean, there really has been a huge amount of time. >> we remember when he was cassius clay. as a side note, a lot of what ali said was profound. some of it was hyironic. the original cassius clay was
shot by a pro-slavery guy in kentucky in the 1840s. that doesn't mean ali didn't have the right to do what he did and didn't do it for right reasons. to correct the historical recorrecord on cassius clay. >> now, everyone reveres him and loves him and adores him. the temptation is to have this gau gauzey portrait. let's talk about how radical and expensive it was for him in the '60s to stand up to the war. >> it was expensive to him in financial terms but also in terms of his image. it's easy, in hindsight, to say, oh, everybody embraced him and loved him. he did a variety of things that turned off a great portion of america. i'm not talking about dividing along racial lines. when he walked away from malcolm x, he turned his back on malcolm x, he lived to regret it and said later, he wish he hadn't. that was a difficult time. he vilified joe frazier in a
racial way. if you did it today, you'd also be vilified. not every step he took was a magnificent one that everybody a appla applauded. often, it was the contrary. >> when you look at today's sports and sports figures, bob, and you know the money at stake and the endorsements, do you think we'll ever see any athlete take the risks muhammad ali took? will we see an athlete activist like him again? >> doubtful. it's a confluence of the individual and the times that produces that individual. i don't know you'll ever get that combination of circumstances again. now, it seems that everything is about branding. ali, mistakes and greatness, all taken together. the greatness overwhelmed the mistakes, for sure. he was authentic. >> i'd also argue it'd be tough to find somebody who approached his level of his platform. the height of his platform, his reach. you could say lebron james and his fame is considerably, but in
comparison to muhammad ali, it's almost non-existent. >> here's a point that may seem minor, but when muhammad ali came on the scene in the '50s and '60s, boxing was mainstream. most americans haven't seen floyd mayweather fight. most couldn't tell you who the heavyweight champion of the world is. then, some of the fights were on pay per view but then he'd be on abc and you'd see the whole fight. some of the fights were on a brks krrbc live. people saw this and knew who joe frazier was. >> you're going to speak at the memorial. what an honor. >> terrific honor. i'd be lying if i told you it wasn't daunting. >> you'll do well. bryant, good to see you. bob, thank you so much. still to come, more on the life and death of muhammad ali, as we look at his impact outside of the ring. we'll talk to football great jim brown. first, this is "today" on nbc.
you scratch my back, i'll scratch yours. you know what it means. so does pat toomey. toomey got rich

parts of florida bracing for strong winds and heavy rain as tropical storm colin churns on in the gulf. overnight winds gusting over 30 miles an hour and rising tides were signs that the storm is on its way. colin is the earliest third-named storm ever in the history of the atlantic hurricane season. overnight, thousands of fans flocked to a new york city concert venue when kanye west announced a surprise concert. the crowd overwhelmed the venue, forcing the cancellation of the performance. west showed up anyway, popping out of the sunroof of a car, which was quickly surrounded by his fans. we begin this half hour though focusing on the life of muhammad ali. the three-time heavyweight champ who also packed a punch outside of the ring with his words, influencing both politics and culture. >> reporter: the fight of the century. >> muhammad ali fights back. >> reporter: the rumble in the jungle. the thrilla in manila. >> muhammad ali at his best.
>> reporter: blockbuster fights starring a larger than life american legend. >> who is the heavyweight champion of the world? >> reporter: boxing thrust muhammad ali into the spotlight. >> float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. >> reporter: we came to learn he had a force as strong as his punch. his heart. >> people look for miracles. people look for surprises of all kinds. yet, the greatest wonder, the greatest miracle, the greatest surprise is to be found in one's heart. >> reporter: at 22, he renounced his name. >> cassius clay was a slave name. i'm no longer a slave. >> reporter: and adopted a new one, as he embraced the muslim faith. >> muhammad means worthy of all praises and ali means most high. >> reporter: a controversial move by the champion. one that surprised some fans. but it didn't stop there. defiant in the face of war, ali refused to serve in vietnam in 1967.
>> there's a lot of difference between fighting in the rain and going to vietnam. >> reporter: the champ stripped of his boxing title, convicted of draft evasion and sentenced to five years in prison. >> my intention is to box, to win a clean fight. but in war, the intention is to kill, kill, kill, kill, kill, and continue killing innocent people. >> reporter: his punches stung like a bee, and so, too, did his words. >> it has been said that i have two alternatives. either go to jail or go to the army. but i would like to say that there is another alternative. that alternative, that alternative is justice. >> reporter: the u.s. supreme court reversed ali's conviction four years later. the champ became a symbol for athleticism and activism. he took up for crucial issues like civil rights.
>> everything good in authority was made white. we look at jesus, blond hair and blue eyes. we look at the angels, blond hair and blue eyes. i'm sure there is a heaven in the sky and the colored folks die and go to heaven. the colored angels must be in the kitchen, preparing the milk and honey. >> reporter: ali's influence on culture, remarkable. politics, kpoextraordinary. >> david prowrote a book on ali called "king of the world." and jim brown is a former running back for the cleveland browns and a friend. the words icon, legend are thrown around. in the case of muhammad ali, you told our producer, the legend is true. >> it's all true. all the contradictions. at that time, very few people stood up for muhammad ali. jim brown was one.
now that we're talking about him in saintly ter lly terms and wer him quieted by parkinson's and his career in the ring, this was an electrifying, radical, pol e political figure. it makes news now when lebron james puts on a shirt and protests the young men in the street. he takes it off and plays. muhammad ali lost three plus years of his career as the heavyweight champion of the world. no one knows who that is now. >> david, it sets me up nicely, jim, throughout his life, he yo were an unwavering friend of muhammad ali's. when he said he wouldn't join the military, there were a lot of people in the country who thought he was using his religion as an excuse. you convened a rather extraordinary summit of people
like bill russell, kareem abdul-jabbar, and you sat down and grilled ali. talk to me about it. >> well, i felt that he was a great friend and that his philosophy was right on. because any american would want to enjoy freedom of equality and justice. so i called my teammate with the cleveland browns, called together some of the top black athletes in the country and asked them to come to cleveland to meet with him. see if he was as sincere. if he was sincere, we would back him 100%. ali came in, came to the house the night before. we discussed it. the next day, we had a five-hour meeting. he was asked every kind of question you could ask a human being. he cracked jokes and answered everything very agagenuinely. we came out of there as a unit,
totally behind him and his actions. later on, he won because the supreme court reversed his decision. >> jim, over the years, people have asked me a question, i think just because they know how much i idolized him, and i know you've heard this, too. they said, do you think muhammad ali at that period in his life disliked white people? are you surprised by the question, and how would you answer it? >> well, absolutely not. he fought for human rights. the great thing about him is he had a wonderful heart. what he hated was discrimination. those of us who consider ourselves warriors, the number one thing we had in this country was discrimination, racism. dehumanizing acts against a person because of the color of their skin. he hated that. but he loved people.
i was in england with him once, and we were at a party with some english, young ladies. he was having a wonderful time. i said, ali, i thought you disliked white folks. kiddingly saying that to him. he said, no. he said, it's just the americans. these english people are not really white. he comes up with these kinds of things to take the edge off of how he truly felt about racism. i hated racism. any black person in america had to look at racism as dehumanizing and something that we had to get rid of. >> as i turn to you, david, let's not forget about the sports figure himself, the boxer. yet, did he have misgivings about that sport? i noticed you wrote this weekend, ali was not blind to the hypocrisies of the game that has been the career of his life. race was often an ugly element
of its history. >> it wasn't lost on him that a lot of the post-war boxing, and the entire 20th century, was a white crowd watching two black men beating each other, often senseless. he said things and behaved in ways that were contradictory. he was the champion of the sport, yet he had doubts about it. in the nation of islam, they talked about acceseparatism, ye had an integrated corner. it was an enormous urge toward pride, toward the pride of the black community. not the denigration of the white community. but in fact, it was the white community, the white power structures of the time, that he grew up in, in segregated louisville, and he rebelled against, logically. he used the office of the heavyweight championship, which is nothing now, to be a symbol of strength and resistance. that's something that i don't
think will ever be repeated. >> didn't he say boxing is how i was introduced to the world? >> it's how he advanced. that was the avenue open to him. >> david and jim brown. jim, i hope you see us soon. perhaps see you in louisville at the end of the week, i hope. >> thank you very much. >> thank you for your time. we appreciate it. david, thank you. >> thank you. shift gears now. we have al over at his weather wall with a check of the weather. >> thanks so much, savannah. we are talking heat out west. the wildfires right now, they're going to not get much relief in the humidity or temperatures. wednesday, up to 87 degrees. it's going to stay warm out there. temperatures, 10 to 25 degrees above average. could see record highs. vegas by wednesday, 110. 109 in phoenix. phoenix, third day in a row they broke a record yesterday. the heat will shift east. in the meantime, later this week, finally seeing a break. portland by saturday, 68. 88 in sacramento. vegas, cooling down to 97. 88 degrees in sal

"today" nutritionist joy bauer is kicki is kicking things off with a healthy alternative to a fatty brunch favorite. take a look. >> when it comes to brunch, eggs benedict is one of the most popular items on the menu. its creamy, fattening sauce makes this a diet disaster at 1,000 calories. not mine. check it out. eggs benedict. tomato slices and canadian bacon on a baking sheet and broil four minutes each side. remove and cover to keep warm. poach eggs.
bring water to boil. reduce heat to simmer. add one teaspoon vinegar. crack eggs into teacups and drop carefully into the water. took for approximately three minutes. yellow pepper hollandaise sauce. yellow pepper, cut it up. place in a bowl. add one tablespoon water, cover and microwave on high for two minutes until the pepper is soft. drain and toss in a blender with light cream cheese, lemon juice, dijon mustard and kosher salt. puree until silky smooth. assemble. the junk food version at 1,000 calories is out. the joy food version at 377 calories is in. you just saved 623 calories.
>> i take back every bad thing i've ever said about you. i just ate this version, the local rhee, alo low calorie, and it's unbelievable. >> it's all about strategy. >> it looks like what we're used to seeing. >> the yellow bell pepper gives it the signature yellow color. no egg yolks in that, and no butter. >> pancakes, i love them. what's my calorie problem? >> order a stack of three with a pad of butter and some syrup. you're looking at 750 calories. matt, that is the equivalent of eating 16 sugar cookies. when you think about it, they're comprised of the same stuff. white flour, sugar and butter. instead, this is the junk food version. instead, you can go to the joy food. for 370 calories, if you order the silver dollar pancakes. they're smaller. you get a whole lot of them, but
it's still a lot less starch. instead of the butter and the syrup, i'm showing some fresh fruit. >> why is the syrup over here? if you want to chaeteat a littl bit. >> for an extra 40 calories, you can put on a teaspoon drizzle and feel like you are eating a stack of pancakes. >> and it's half the calories. >> half. >> omelets, i don't think people think about how many calories we stuff into the omelets we eat. >> right. i sent out via social media a question. what is your favorite omelet? overwhelmingly, people said, ham and cheese. ham and cheese omelet with a side of hashbrowns clocks in at 900 calories. that's the equivalent of eating three egg mcmuffins. >> a typical breakfast for me. where are the hashbrowns? okay. what have you done? >> i left the ham and cheese omelet, but this is an egg white. when you go from a whole egg to
egg white, you're shaving off 60 calories per egg. i left off the hashbrowns and i have fresh fruit. >> is that cheddar cheese? >> yes. you're in a diner. order your ham and cheese diner, but egg white style. >> i love sausage. i really do. >> a lot of people do. >> i love it. >> so when you order two breakfast sausage links, it'll clock in at about 160 calories. you would have to walk a full two miles just to burn off these tiny links. instead, if you swap to -- believe it or not -- two strips of bacon, you'll cut the calories in half. you go from 160 calories for two links, two slices of bacon, 80 calories. ask the pawaiter a eer or waitr they have turkey babacon. that's less. >> i thought you were going to force me into tofu. >> no.
we're back at 8:39, with oscar-nominated actor, jesse eisenberg, reprising his role as j. daniel atlas in "now you see me 2." >> the four horsemen pulled off a great trick in the first film. now, to escape, they have to use magic of their own. >> i'm going to try to control something that's a lot easier than people. i'm going to try to control the
weather. [ applause ] it'd be difficult to make it rain. that would be something only god can do, right? i'm going to do something that god can't do. i'm not just going to make it clear up. no, no, no. i'm going to make it actually stop. >> jesse, good morning. nice trick. >> thank you very much. >> people loved the first movie. >> yeah. >> when they came to you with the sequel, was your reaction, oh, sequel, or, oh, sequel? >> probably somewhere in between. oh, sequel. but, you noknow, the concern wa like, it was great and it seemed to work for a number of reasons we couldn't foresee or control. we were hesitant until we read the script that they got right and we thought, this is fantastic and worthy of doing. it seemed like the movie people wanted to see more of. this ensemble of wonderful actors. a concept of magicians who can do incredible things. people were wanting another one. >> for you, the films are a breath of fresh air. as you've said and admitted yourself, you're used to playing
kind of unhappy people who make everybody miserable. >> exactly. >> that's not this case. >> i grew up playing that in my personal life and now i play it for a living. miserable, self-loathing people. now i'm this incredible magician who loves himself. it's this strange thing. after the end of a long day playing this guy, i'm like, i kind of feel okay. i think i might sleep tonight for the first time in months. >> is magic something you were into as a kid? does this come naturally to you? >> yes, i loved it as a kid but i was frustrated by it because i didn't know how it was done. what i like about this movie is we explain how it is done. the trick with the rain is not only possible, but in the movie, the characters explain how it is done. the trick with the rain, in my opinion, is the most beautiful trick in the movie and, yet, it's easy to do. >> wait, wait, wait, wait. i have a golf game on sunday and it's supposed to rain. you can stop the rain? >> although, if you have a golf game, i can just tell you how to win. yes, the rain is an incredible trick.
it requires like a rain machine, which obviously, is something you're not taking into consideration. and a strobe light. you can time it so it appears as if it is stopping. incredible. >> i heard you and your cast meats went to magic boot camp. is this something we should try? >> boot camp makes it sound more rigorous than it was. >> on the floor now. >> exactly. we tried to learn. our characters would have been practicing since they were 8 years old in the mirror for ten hours a day. we hung out with some magicians for two weeks and learned some tricks. then proceeded to tell everybody i know how everything is done, and got booted out. >> let's change topics. you're in a play now over in london. >> that's right. >> it's a play you did here in new york. what is the biggest difference between a new york audience and a london audience? >> it's the strangest thing. i wrote the play. i'm a new yorker. we did the play in new york. yet, for some reason, and it takes place in new york city. it's about new yorkers. the london audiences seem to be
kind of flocking to it with more excitement. i don't know what it is. the audiences seem to be more into it, more engaged. i don't know what it is. i suspect we have maybe a novelty thing there, because we're unusual being there. here, maybe it's more typical. it's been the most incredible experience. we have a show in 24 hours. >> you're back to london? >> yeah. >> the brits are maybe laughing at us. >> yes, exactly. they're mocking us. exactly. >> is there going to be a third installment in this movie franchise? >> listen, i hope for my own therapy sake that there is. it's the healthiest thing i do. i would love it. this movie turned out even better than the first one. so i think, you know, that's our trajectory, i hope there are several. >> maybe you'll be back for "now you see me 3." >> that'd be great. >> "now you see me 2" comes out june 10th. jesse, thank you. >> thank you. how mammograms can save more lives. first, this is "today" on nbc.
we're back at 8:46. ladies, we know how to miss our annual breast exams, but there is another reason to stay on top of it. a new study suggests that mammograms can reveal the risk of the number one killer of women. next time you get a scan, you may be getting more than just a screening for breast cancer. >> reporter: breast cancer kills 1 in every 8 women. heart disease, 1 in every 4. now, one test may spot early clues about both. a new study by researchers at mt. sinai hospital in new york found that a digital mammogram may also be able to visualize heart disease. >> we can look at your mammogram and determine with some relative degree of accuracy and sensitivity clues about the health of your heart. >> reporter: the year-long study followed 300 women. more than 70% of those who had evidence of calcification in breast arteries also had calcium
deposits in their heart arteries. >> if you have calcification in the arteries of your breast, there is a likelihood you have calcification in the arteries taking the blood to the heart, putting you at an increased risk of heart attack. >> reporter: doctors ignored this before, but now a trip to the cardiologist could be a next step. a way to use existing technology for a double dose of prevention. >> nbc news medical contributor dr. natalie azar is here with more information. good morning. >> good morning, savannah. >> you seem genuinely excited about this, too, because it opens the door to an additional screening. >> as we talked about before the segment, i plan on asking my doctor to look for it on my next mammogram. i think the issue we were talking about is whether or not it's going to become standard care. i think there is no consensus whether or not this should be done repeatedly and routinely. although, certainly, the researchers here are suggesting that should happen. >> so the issue is, when you're
looking at a breast exam, a mammogram, you can also see calcification of the breast artery, is that right? >> exactly. >> so it's kind of an indicator that you might have heart disease. >> right. they found 70%, the women who were found to have the calcification in the breast artery, 70% of them had coronary artery calcification. that is signature. coronary artery calcification is one of the earliest signs of cardiovascular disease. >> if i ask my radiologist at the next mammogram, can you look for this, as well, is that something any radiologist would be able to see, or does it require special training? >> here's the issue, i think it's very easy to see with the naked eye. there is a definite correlation. you can see exactly there, there is a correlation between how much calcification is seen on the mammogram on those arteries and how much is seen on the cat scan, the image used to look at the heart. the issue is whether or not they can do that legally, without having the proper training.
it has to be scored. the calcification gets a score on the mammogram and also gets a score on the cat scan of the heart. i think, yeah, certainly, someone could do a casual reading of it. once it becomes in the body of the report of the mammogram, there are certainly -- i don't want to say a liability, but there is a responsibility to follow that up. i think that's kind of the inherent message here. we may be picking up heart disease in asymptomatic women who ordinarily wouldn't be getting screened for cardiovascular disease with the test they're already getting done. which is what makes it appealing to, you know, health care providers and all of us who undergo these tests. it's almost like a two for one. >> point of entry. but if you were to have a radiologist who looked at it and said, yes, i do see this calcification -- >> right. >> -- that's step one. then you should? >> exactly. then you follow up with your primary care doctor. get a referral to a cardiologist. we want to put up on the screen quickly the risk factors for women in heart disease. diabetes, mental stress, belly
fat, triglycerides. this has to be individualized for every woman. if they find out they have the calcifications, what next steps need to be done to evaluate them for cardiovascular disease. >> it's an exciting development. >> it's interesting. >> dr. azar, thank you. >> thanks. a tribute to the greatest. remembering muhammad ali. this is "today" on nbc.
spent more than 30 years in the public schools. we're retired, but we like to stay involved. you think he's going to learn to fly? we're just as busy now as in our teaching days. the same goes for a lot of the retired educators we know. let me see you all flap your wings, like you're penguins learning to fly. teaching is all about building relationships. and that never goes away. because once a teacher, always a teacher. we're ed and miriam, and we're proud to be new jersey educators.
we're back now on this monday morning. all morning long, we have been reflecting on the life and the legacy of muhammad ali. over the years, we've found ourselves cheering for him, laughing with him. we were all inspired by him. now, we end the half hour by paying tribute to the greatest of all time. >> i am the king of the world. >> hold it, hold on. >> i'm pretty. >> you're not that pretty. >> it looks like this exciting 20-year-old is on his way to the heavyweight championship. >> what are we going to do? >> float like a butterfly and sting like a bee. >> i am pretty as a girl. >> cassius clay was my slave
name. i'm no longer a slave. muhammad means worthy of things and ali means most high. >> stop talking now. attention. i told you, all of my critics, i told you all that i was the greatest of all time, going to beat sonny liston. today, i'm still the greatest of all time. >> my intention is to box to win a clean fight, but in war, the intention is to kill, kill, kill, kill, and continue killing innocent people. >> the greatest fight of all time. >> i'm the king, and you'll never take that. >> in a bruising and brutal fight ended with joe frazier sitting in the corner, the loser, and muhammad ali lying on the floor, the winner. ali is still the heavyweight champion of the world. >> i'm not just the champion, i'm ranked as the greatest champion of all time. >> people look for miracles.
people look for surprises of all kinds. yet, the greatest wonder, the greatest miracle, the greatest surprise is to be found in one's heart. >> the 42-year-old, former heavyweight boxing champion, is suffering from a disorder of the nervous system that has slurred his speech and slowed his motions. >> how are you feeling? >> good. >> great, great presence. still exuding great staturestat >> the united states honors muhammad ali.
good morning. i'm tracy davidson. happy monday. get ready for a lot of sunshine. let's get details from nbc 10 first alert meteorologist karen thomas. >> happy words and happy monday. plenty of sunshine today. we're drying out as the storms much out. high pressure building in bringing us blue skies. really for the most part we're looking for mostly sunny skies
across the region and all of that sunshine will help boost our temperatures up into 80s today, really looking just nice and crisp across the board, especially there in delaware as we look to stadium. high temperatures in the mid-to-upper 80s feeling more like summer time. now let's check the blue route. slow going in one area. jessica boyington has the details exactly where. >> we're watching the blue route right around ridge pike. an accident scene that's finally into the shoulder. we're seeing some improvements. several vehicles involved. blocking the shoulder. a slow go around ridge pike and head ed southbound from the p.a. turnpike to the schuylkill expressway. average speed in the tens. in horsham we're watching an accident on horsham and drescher road. philadelphia police are trying to find the person who shot and killed a man while he sat on the front steps of his home. it happened around 3:30 this morning. he died at the hospital.
[ sirens blaring ] don't be alarmed if you hear sirens. the test will last three minutes at 2:00. one of two full volume tests done each year. today the head of the federal reserve janet yellen will visit philadelphia to speak at the world affairs luncheon. the fed decides later this month whether or not to raise interest rates. thanks for watching.
this morning on "today's take," kanye west causing mayhem in manhattan as a surprise concert is cancelled. national yo-yo day. wait until you see what our world champion does to show off his skills. straight off the night shift, scott wolf gets up early to hang out with us. coming up right now. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today's take" with al roker, natalie morales, willie geist and tamron hall. live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. hey, welcome to "today" on a monday morning. june 6th, 2016. i'm al along with natalie and tamron. our man willie is off. morning jam, "the world's greatest," by mr. r. kelly.
>> i picked it from the soundtrack of the movie "ali." it's one of the most beautiful songs. i've been listening to it all weekend long after we got the news. it's beautiful. >> perfect tribute. >> we're going to be honoring him in a little bit. first, obviously, weekends and things to do. al, you had a really special weekend. >> yeah, we had a fun weekend. >> hung out with your bud. >> that's right. the vice president and dr. biden host this little thing. i got stuff in my teeth. it's called the biden beach bash. it's saturday on the grounds of their home, the naval observatory. they set up all this -- it's like a beach. they've got all these inflatable toys and stuff going on. the vice president himself and dr. biden get out there with water guns and start -- there is a water gunfight. >> so fun. >> just a spectacular time.
there's a naval band playing. >> did you get in a super soaker fight with vice president biden? >> i did not. >> you would have let him win that fight. >> make sure he'd win. >> absolutely. they open up their home. it's special. >> i love they do that. they have the krchristmas party and this, too. >> really sweet. >> tamron, you got a special award. >> i got the spirit of the founder award from spellman college. great women assembled there. it was in new york. that was the award they gave me. >> beautiful. >> isn't it? they commissioned it and, you know, it's stunning. when i came home, i thought, okay, i've got to put this -- i was like -- >> it's like artwork. >> it is. >> beautiful. >> the artist's name? >> forgive me, the name escapes me but i'll tweet it out. thank you to spellman college for that. >> beautiful. going back to the news from the weekend. we all woke up saturday morning, if you were up late friday night
and into saturday morning, you heard about it early. the sad note, the world has lost a legend. legend is a word that gets overused a lot. >> absolutely. >> as bryant gumbel said earlier, and so many said earlier today, i think in this case, it truly applied. so many of us grew up, perhaps, maybe not knowing necessarily his fights. i know when i was a young kid, i knew his legend but i didn't necessarily watch his fights. >> i'm old enough. i remember when he was cassius clay and remembered when he renounced that name. >> yeah. >> took muhammad ali. it was an electric time. >> yeah. >> the idea that somebody -- he truly is a superstar. when the world heavyweight championship actually meant something. i mean, it was mainstream. >> truly was, yes. >> for him to renounce that -- or to have that stripped for three years, and then to come back again. >> right, and to win the titles back again. >> win the titles that were
stripped from him. >> to be an activist and humanitarian. it really was amazing. if there is anything great that comes out of this, besides the celebration of his life, it is that hopefully now, younger people will -- because as parkinson's ravaged him, he became a little more quiet. still, very active, but was not in the forefront. >> you think of a legend as so big. thankfully, we have so much video of him from when he beat sonny liston. on and on and on. we've talked about this before. i got into tv because of joe frazier and his partner, watson. my first tv job was because of joe and their relationship. at the end of joe's life, they'd made peace with each other. his legend is so -- i think jim brown said it best. the only thing he hated was
discrimination. that's what the young people, i think, are focusing on now, especially at a divisive time. whether it is political or whatever the global crisis is, i think the kids get that from him. that's what he hated. >> a man who certainly was controversial in his time, as well. you can't gloss over all of that. >> right. what was controversial then is not now. >> he was on the right side. >> and the critics were on the wrong side. in the even, we remember his right over their wrong. >> you think of him in a pre-internet age. >> yes. >> he was social media. >> right. >> i mean, wherever he went, there wasn't a corner of the world that muhammad ali could not go and be recognized and mobbed and loved. >> did you see the interview? forgive me, i forgot again, but someone was flying over with muhammad ali. he said, look at all of the lights down here. these are homes. i could walk into any of these homes and they know who i am.
he wasn't sayi ining it in a bragidocious way. >> he is the most famous athlete in the world. i remember as a kid, in brazil, he was on the cover of magazines during that time. his body was flown back to louisville over the weekend. president bill clinton, bryant gumbel and billy crystal will be eulogizing him. on social media, everybody speaking of his legend and his greatness. president obama tweeted out, he shook up the world and the world is better for it. rest in peace, champ. fellow boxer george foreman and hana ali and the whole family, my heart goes out to you. muhammad ali has been a fine man that will never die. "sports illustrated" sharing all of the 40 covers that ali appeared on. >> amazing. >> along with michael jordan. one of the most mote graphed people on their front page, on
the cover. and hana ali's tweet profoundly impacted so many. as i saw the tweet over the weekend, it touched me. she said, all of his organs failed but his heart wouldn't stop beating for 30 minutes. his heart just kept beating. really says so much. earlier this morning on "today," his daughter laila ali spoke with matt and savannah. >> i personally have been sad for a long time. my father has been struggling with parkinson's disease for many years. it's not easy, wasn't easy, to watch him suffer. knowing that he's not suffering anymore is what gives me comfort. i prepared mentally for many years. obviously, one day, i was going to lose my father. the time has come. i think the whole world is sad. anybody who ever loved him, and so many people do. i don't feel alone. it's not just our family. it's the whole world. >> i want to close by asking about your son, curtis muhammad
conway jr. we should put up a picture of him. it's striking, how much he bears resemblance to his grandfather. i wonder, laila, if that is a comfort to you and what you plan to tell him about his grandfather. >> definitely. my son is a spitting image of my father when he was young. he has a lot of the same characteristics and qualities. he'll learn on through him. he's learning more and more how special pawpaw was. >> so sweet. he looks exactly like his grandpa. it's amazing. >> i remember '96 -- >> we were talking about our favorite memories. >> i was there at the opening sceremonies when he lit the flame. i mean, it was just electric. >> how do you describe the crowd? i was at home crying with everybody else, but how do you describe the crowd? >> it was everybody -- this ground swell of love going out. admiration. it was applause but, yet, it was
this reverence in a way. >> even though the parkinson's, you know, his body was trembling, his strength and his fire was still so -- >> it was the embodiment -- >> -- powerful. >> -- of the olympic spirit, the flame. >> friday night, i was at the award ceremony for spellman college, and look what they had. an auction to raise money for spellman college students. i bought, unbeknownst to me, a photograph with ali and frazier, signed by both of them, and the shorts signed by ali, frazier, mike tyson. i was just donating it to the scholarship fund for kids who can't afford to go. then the next morning, we hear this. >> wow. >> isn't that weird? >> unbelievable. >> his legacy will live on. this weekend, there was a big outdoor music festival on randall's island. >> governor's ball. >> gov ball.
kanye west was supposed to be the headliner. >> for last night. >> it was last night. well, big storms rolled through new york, so they cancelled it. wisely. there's no way to get people off -- >> safely. >> it would be a panic. >> would have gone to a mud ball. they cancelled. word started to get out that there was going to be a surprise performance at webster hall. >> which is in the middle of new york city. you probably have not seen it. the concert venue that locals go to. >> thousands of people are packing the streets. >> word is, kanye tweeted out a cryptic tweet. what did he tweet? >> something cryptic. it was in code. >> i'll look it up. >> show at 2:00 a.m., sold out. >> all right. >> no one knew where the show was? >> people somehow got clues. at 1:45 a.m., the venue, webster
hall said, there's no concert. go home. at 2:00 a.m., kanye pops up out of a vehicle from the sunroof. >> do we have the pop-up? >> we don't have the pop-up. >> we'll tell you about it. >> kim kardashian posting a snapchat video showing her husband on the phone, urging someone to call the mayor. >> what? >> call the mayor and shut down the block so we can have a party outside. i know it's sold out already. >> okay, so at 3:00 a.m., they called -- wait. kanye west wanted to call mayor de blasio and shut down the area? >> yes, which was already too late because everybody was there. >> the fact that -- he's got him on a bat phone or something? >> just call the mayor. it's kanye's world. >> make room for kanye. shut down all of new york city. it's kanye's day. >> can you -- kim is taping it.
get the mayor on the phone at 2:00 a.m. wake him up. >> really, kanye was planning to wish natalie a happy birthday. >> oh! is he here? >> he's here. kanye, come on out. come out, kanye. oh, it's jerry. just like having kanye. >> the best. >> from the folks, make my cake in harlem. >> looks amazing. >> they have fantastic cakes. love it. it is also, coincidentally, national yo-yo day. we have a little surprise. we have john higby coming in. he holds three guinness world records for yo-yo tricks. he's going to help us. >> okay. >> you've got to light a candle. >> hey. >> birthday entrance. >> this is just not any way to light the candle. john, you're going to help us light the candle. >> yeah.
